About Güyük Khan, Khagan of the Mongol Empire

Wikipea: Güyük khan levde mellan 1206 och 1248 och var storkhan i Mongolväldet de sista två åren av sitt liv. Han var son till Ögedei, kusin till Khubilai khan och sonson till Gjingis Khan. Han deltog i invasione av Ryssland och Europe åren 1236-1241 men hamnade under denna tid i konflikt med sin kusin Batu. När Ögedei dog, försökte Batu påverka valet av ny storkhan, med Güyüks mor Torehenis hjälp blev han vald 1245. Under hans tid vid makten fortsatte kriget med Song-dynastian och man planerade ett attack mot Bagdad. Han besegrade det sista västasiatiska hotet, Abbasid-kalifatet, med hjälp av brodern Hülegü. När han dog 1248 var inbördeskrig nära mellan honom och Batu. Hans änka, Oghul Ghaimish, tog över men efter tre år lyckades Batu under ett kurultai välja Güyüks kusin Möngde till ledare. (Wikipea).

Güyük (or Kuyuk; Mongolian Cyrillic: Гүюг хаан) (c.March 19 1206–April 20 1248) was the third Great Khan of the Mongol Empire , the eldest son of Ögedei Khan and a grandson of Genghis Khan .He reigned from 1246 to 1248.

Güyük received military training and served as an officer under Genghis Khan and Ögedei Khan. He married Oghul Qaimish of the Merkit clan. In 1233, Güyük, along with his maternal cousin Alchidai and the Mongol general Tangghud, conquered the short-lived Dongxia Kingdom of Puxian Wannu, who was a rebellious Jin official,[1] in a few months. After the death of Tolui, Ögedei proposed that Sorghaghtani, the widow of Tolui, marry his son Güyük. Sorghaghtani declined, saying that her prime responsibility was to her own sons.

In the Mongol period, indeed, the Christian communities enjoyed at the outset a comparative florescence and toleration; in the time of the Great Khan Güyük (r.1246-49), the influence within the Mongol horde of the Syrian monk Simeon Rabban Ata secured the building of churches in strongly Muslim towns like Tabrīz and Nakhchevan (Naḵjavān), until the conversion to Islam of Ḡāzān (r. 694-703/1295-1304) brought about a reversal of this favor (see Spuler, Mongolen, pp. 203ff.). Thereafter, Christianity in Azerbaijan declined to the point of extinction, with the exception of the vestigial Nestorian or Assyrian Christian Neo-Syriac-speaking communities of the Lake Urmia region which have survived till today. As for the Jews, these are virtually unmentioned in the early centuries, though they may well have formed part of the urban communities.
